Core Exhibit

Colchester: Life in the Heart of Nova Scotia

In March 2020, the Board of Directors of the Colchester Historeum made the decision to close the doors of the museum and archives to the public due to COVID-19. As a result, the staff decided to take on the project of redesign the Core Exhibit. Not changed since 2015, the staff of the Historeum used new subject matter that is still reflective of the exhibits overall theme, and selected many objects that have never been on display before! The result is a fresh and modern take on Life in the Heart of Nova Scotia.

Two cases in the Core Exhibit will be changed on a seasonal basis, allowing our local audience to see something new every few months!
